    I bought a 2008 Camry LE, 32,800 miles. The only option is the sunroof. I kept my truck and will drive it on occasion. It will give me a chance to do some intense cleaning and some more maintenance to it.

    Anyone else have a new body Camry? Anything I should watch for on these cars?

    I have a 2011 Camry SE 4 cylinder, and we have 20,000 miles on it. This is our 2nd Camry in this body style, and have had no issues to date.

    we did. sold it to my father in law.

    the inside door handles are weak. careful with yanking to hard. my FIL also hit a relatively small pothole and tweeked the front end. had to replace a spindle. i was stunned. still searching for one wheel to replace a slightly bent one that we moved to a rear position.

    I got the 4cyl. My hope is a substantial increase in MPGs compared to my truck (currently around 18). We will also use it for road trips. My wife's car ('08 Civic) is great but it is becoming a bit small for all of us.
